Your class will split it's time today: ~45 min. playing, ~45 min. working on vocabulary. Be sure to switch and do both the playing AND the vocabulary. Your grade for today will consist of 50 points for your SmartMusic assignment and 50 points for your vocabulary.
Group 1: Flutes, Clarinets and Percussion Group 2: Saxophones and Brass
Group 1: Spend 45 minutes with your instrument. Wind-players - do a quick warm-up and tune (there is tuner in the practice tools on SmartMusic, if you don't have one). Then, find a place to work (outside, hallway, etc.) where you have some space between you and the next person and work on today's SmartMusic assignment - KING COTTON. (Jordan, you don't have a separate assignment for today in SM - instead, work on your mallet test material for Friday since you only have access to the mallet instruments while you're in the room.) After 45 minutes, switch to memrise.com (see instructions below with Group 2)
Group 2: Spend 45 minutes on memrise.com working on the "Terms and Vocabulary" unit. Most of the time it will pick up where you left off, but I'll be checking the leader-board for points earned THIS WEEK. Each correct response is typically 45 pts. You need at least 7,000 points to earn your grade today. (~150 right answers) After 45 minutes, switch to SmartMusic (see instructions above with Group 1)
* Keep everyone on task. If everyone in your class submits a SmartMusic with a score of at least 70, and has a memrise score of at least 7,000... I will give the entire class25 pts. extra credit on today's work (for a score of 125) to help offset any low grades you may have currently, or in the upcoming weeks. Use your time wisely - if you've completed all of your work, helping someone else who is struggling can help BOTH of you earn 25 extra points! :-)
